Lou Will scored the second-most points of his career, but it came in a loss. The Lakers, as fun as they are to watch, have injury troubles that have wasted a few great Lou Will performances.
Best Performance of the Night by a former Hawk
Watching Lou Williams score points is fun, to say the least. His mid-range shiftiness, combined with an unstoppable long-range shot when he’s hot, makes him an exciting commodity. In fact, on NBA 2K17, his overall has been raised to an 80. For comparison, D’Angelo Russell is a 79 overall. This makes Lou Williams, former South Gwinett legend, the highest rated player on the Lakers currently. His status as a Laker Legend is now certified.
